People often interchange Lion and Dragon Dance.  Simply put, the Dragon dance is much bigger than the Lion dance. It (the Dragon Dance) involves a lot of people whereas only 2 persons are needed for a Lion dance.

Erm, not entirely sure what’s the sugar art got to do with the … drawings on the bottom left of the pictures. He ‘paints’ figures (probably on wax paper so they won’t stick) of the zodiac and places a stick on it.

Sugar Dragon

This Dragon was made entirely of crystallized sugar.  Must be a very sweet dragon … perhaps he spews sugar instead of fire =)

The Lunar New Year also coincided with the Day of Hearts =)
